Features

Replacement Dashboard Panel: This replacement dashboard panel (DP6551) from Metra is engineered to help you install an aftermarket 4" tall (Double-DIN) radio so that you can upgrade the stereo much easier in a 1998-2001 Dodge Ram 1500/2500/3500. Since the original dashboard on these older models cannot fit a larger radio, this replacement panel allows you to upgrade to a bigger, modern radio without complex or labor-intensive custom fabrication. It features a custom black textured finish match the original look and feel of the vehicle's dashboard.

  • This will not fit 1998 Dodge Ram 1500/2500/3500 models with a single knob headlamp switch or 12-volt power in the upper right corner of the dashboard. 
  • An additional wiring harness (sold separately) will be required for installation of the new aftermarket stereo.
